Poland-born Agon Hare of Project Nightfall and Nas Daily sent cheers and positive messages to Filipinos as Luzon went on lockdown with an island-wide quarantine that took effect last week.
The viral travel video content creator is the person behind the Facebook page and YouTube channel Project Nightfall and is 1/3 of the team behind the Nas Daily videos.
Hare posted the Facebook video “How the Philippines Fights the COVID-19 Lockdown with Technology” on March 20, 2020, showcasing how Filipino resilience gets the nation through crises and that the coronavirus disease will not win over Pinoys.
The popular vlogger and traveler lauded the Filipinos for being creative and adaptable to the current situation in Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon.
Hare noted how the quarantine to stop the spread of COVID-19 also stopped most work and public transportation in the cities and kept people at home.
“Hiya Philippines!” the internet sensation started his much need message of positivity to Filipinos who are currently facing the global pandemic.
“I want to send a positive message to all of you. Hindi kayo kayang sirain ng coronavirus,” Agon said in his video, cheering up the Filipino spirit especially now that, as of this writing, 462 Filipinos have already been confirmed to be infected by the coronavirus, with 33 deaths and 18 recoveries.
“Hindi kayo kayang sirain ng coronavirus,” Agon said in his Project Nightfall video
“I know that right now, 57 million Filipinos are on a lockdown with empty streets and empty malls. People cannot go to work and kids cannot go to school COVI-19 made Metro Manila feel like a ghost town,” Hare says.
The popular vlogger then pointed out the innate positive traits of the Filipinos: being creative and resilient and commended the people for maximizing the use of technology.
“But if there’s one thing I’ve learned after visiting the Philippines is that, no matter what happens, you always stay positive and find a solution. And this time, you’re doing it again.
“This is a fact: For many years now Filipinos rank number one in the world when it comes to the use of the internet and social media. That’s why when school shut down and people have to work from home, Filipinos went on the internet.”
Agon said that it was a great idea, that while observing the social distancing in this time of COVID-19 pandemic, people can still continue their office work and children can still learn through lessons online.
“Many people in Metro Manila are using apps to work remotely or have their kids learn online. Take a free app called Lark for example. Using Lark, they can video chat with their colleagues or teachers and work on documents all without leaving home and all for free. Some of the adults still get to go to work and some of the kids still get to go to school. This is the internet revolution in the Philippines.”
The online celebrity, who is also known for his video content where he shares his own insights, appreciation and criticism intended to make a positive impact and improvement in the society, agreed with the enhanced quarantine guidelines to minimize the further spread of the virus and protect the vulnerable elder people.
“And truth is, I think the lockdown is important. It is much needed to fight the pandemic, especially to protect from the spread of the virus and to protect the elders.”
“But if there’s one thing I’ve learned after visiting the Philippines is that, no matter what happens, you always stay positive and find a solution. And this time, you’re doing it again.”
The social media star reminded the public to remain calm, have a positive mindset, and maximize the tools given by the advanced online technology.
“So until the 12th of April stay positive, Don’t panic. Use the internet. And keep on living your lives even if all online I know the coronavirus will not break you and this is my positive message for you.
“Because there’s no virus strong enough to stop the singing spirit of the Philippines.”
The vlogger-musician also serenaded the Filipinos by singing the Original Pilipino Music [OPM] hit song “Buwan” by Karlos Labajo.
Local comedian-singer Vice Ganda also released his new music video “Corona Ba-Bye Na!” to help the people deal with sadness, fear, and boredom while the community quarantine is on-going.
